So I have been wanting to do this post for a while but really haven’t had a chance to sit down and get it all out but I think I waited long enough.
If you follow me on Instagram then you have seen the pouches I have recently made. Since I was a little girl I have always wanted to learn how to use a sewing machine. My grandmother had one but she had stopped using hers for a long while. My mother has always sewn by hand including our halloween outfits and she never learned how to use a machine. In the past couple of years I had purchased a few mini and handheld sewing machines just to try it out but had no luck with them. Now because of YouTube and all the wonderful people who have uploaded some amazing tutorials I finally got the courage to get a full size sewing machine. The only problem was the money. Well once I told my mother about how I wanted to get a sewing machine she surprised me and bought one for me as well as herself. I was sooo excited and grateful and I couldn’t wait to have my very own machine. I was also excited that we would both be able to learn together.
It has been a dream of mine to be able to sew and I have always wanted to share my creations with others. For christmas I decided that I would sew zippered pouches for my cousins as gifts and after posting them on Instagram I had such wonderful responses. That’s when I started my line of pouches made from beautiful coordinating designer fabrics. It has been such an amazing experience selling my pouches and the support and love I received from my fellow instagram has encouraged me to pursue my dream.
As of right now my pouches will be under the name of V’s sweet ideas but might be changing it soon so watch out for some more upcoming news. I am also just selling them on Instagram but will most likely be adding them to my shop
I do want to share just a few of the pouches I have made with you and if you would like to purchase your very own pouch then you can follow me on Instagram
Just some info on my pouches:
Each one is made with lots of love and care. I also use designer fabric and line with a coordinating design. interface is also added for stability. I top it off with a lovely coordinating zipper.
The standard size is approx. 8 x 4 but feel free to contact me if you have a custom size.
You can contact me through email at Vanessa@vssweetideas.com if you have any questions. Thank you!
Good morning everyone!!!! Its March 1st so that means we have a brand new challenge going on at our challenge blog. We also have a new sponsor this month.
Being that it’s my son’s birthday this month I thought a “kids theme” challenge would be perfect. My son loves to receive handmade cards on his birthday. I think maybe that’s my fault lol. But my mother and his God mother have always made him a card and mailed it to him.
For this challenge our sponsor A day for Daisies has generously donated some images for us to use and there are just so many beautiful images to choose from. I chose a girl with wings with falling hearts. (Don’t worry this is not for my son lol. I am making him a special one) I just thought this image was beautiful and would be perfect for a child to brighten up their day.
Here is some info on our sponsor
ADFD PRIZE: ADFD will provide a 12$ gift card to the shop at www.adayfordaisies.com
(that’s equal to 3 images of choice) to the winner. Please send the winners name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will send them their Gift Certificate.
A Day For Daisies provides themed categories of over 3000 digital illustrations and a fast growing line of new clear polymer stamp sets, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!
Here is my card

Good morning everyone! It’s time for another challenge at our challenge blog V’s sweet challenge.We are now in February and of course valentine’s day is coming up but instead of doing a valentines day theme we decided to go for a more general one. So let’s see some red, white and pink in your projects.
Our sponsor for this month is the wonderful bugaboo stamps who has generously provided us with some beautiful digi’s.
Here is my card using a sponsor image. So Nicole or DT has been using her prisma color pencils recently and she has inspired me to use mine. I have had my pencils for about 14 years so I took them out from storage and decided to use them for this project and I must say I really love how the image came out. I think I will be playing with these pencils for awhile. Also many of the embellishments you see can be purchased on my online shop
White twill -V’s sweet shop
Red chevron -V’s sweet shop
Red ric-rac ribbon – V’s sweet shop
Sweet dots (enamel dots) – V’s sweet shop
Good afternoon everyone! So sorry for the late posting but we have another wonderful challenge over at the squirrel and the fox and this weeks challenge is sponsored by me V’s sweet ideas!!! Yay!!! I had designed two digital images and the DT used them in their projects. They did an amazing job. It was amazing to see my digital image come to life! Here is my card I made using my image.
For this weeks challenge the winner will receive a $10 gift cert to my store and a set of my very own enamel dots. Please don’t forget to click the link above and join this weeks challenge.
Good evening everyone! Tonight is the first challenge of the year for The Squirrel and the fox and to bring us into the new year our theme for the week is “show off your new stuff”.
I know many of us, including me, received some fun new craft toys to play with.
Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Hobbybook who has generously supplied us with fab digi’s to play with.
They will be giving away 5 free digi’s to one lucky winner. Yay!!!
Here is the card I made using one of their digi’s. I chose this one because just last week my son was invited to a karate party so I thought this image fit the mood. I wanted to make it as boyish as possible and even used glitter washi. (Hope that is not to girlish, lol) I used the new glitter washi tape, my new enamel dots and new wood veneers I purchased. For more amazing inspiration please don’t forget to check out what our other Dt’s have created!
